E-Learning Strategy

Policy and Guidelines

The E-Learning Strategy 2013-2020 sets out a vision for the future learning environment at the University of Glasgow and outlines how e-learning can support this vision. It identifies specific strategic priorities for the coming years and the enablers that will allow the delivery of these priorities. The Strategy does not tell staff how to teach or students how to learn but rather seeks to empower them by increasing both the range and accessibility of the methods they can adopt.

The strategy builds on the aspirational vision for our learning environment originally outlined in the University strategic plan and further developed in our Learning and Teaching Strategy. It specifically addresses the core commitment that “the learning experience will be enhanced by physical and virtual infrastructure of the highest quality and excellent learning resources that are targeted to address our diverse learning community’s needs and to provide them with flexibility in what, how, when and where they learn”.
